Back in the Dominican Republic

We've just returned from a trip to the Dominican Republic for Green & Blacks and Paul and I had a truly incredible experience.

Rather than stay in hotels we stayed with families in the small town of La Laguna situated in the North. Consequently we lived as the locals did; without running water, flushing toilet facilities and most of the time electricity. We ate, worked and socialised together. The food was simple and often plucked from the nearest tree. To shower after a hard day's work in the heat we used a bucket and as little water as possible as it's in scarce supply.

We managed to capture some great images and footage so look out for more stills and films in the next few weeks!

Back from the DR

Jim & I returned from santo Domingo yesterday after our 2 week trip with Green & Black's & Raleigh International.  I'm feeling shredded today, but we returned relatively unharmed from the cacao jungles with, imvho, some of our best footage & photography.

This was our kit list:

2 x Canon 5-D MkII's
Sony HVR Z7
Red Rock Micro Rig
Tascam DR-100
Sennheiser Mic
LaCie Rugged - 1TB
A suitcase full of batteries.

Pics soon...
